We stopped two different nights for dessert at Cheesecakes by Alex. I agree that it is a charming place and different cheesecake selections each time. We sat outside and watch the pedestrian traffic in downtown Greensboro. I'm not sure the cheesecake beats the Cheesecake Factory but the staff was friendly and plenty of selections. I would visit again on the... More

Cheesecake's by Alex is a fantastic local dessert restaurant with a charm unique to Greensboro. The staff is pleasant, though not overly friendly. The dining area is small, but the outdoor patio is lovely in the summertime. We had a fun time sitting outside watching the Greensboro nightlife on a Friday night. It can get pretty full during the summer... More

On my first visit to Cheesecakes by Alex I decided to go with the plain NY cheesecake...start off with the basics. What a treat! I was surprised at how small the space was but I went at an "off" time so it was not too hard to see the display case. So many tempting choices !!! I was delighted at... More

Really, you can never go wrong with a slice of cheesecake from here! It's a great little spot with the best cheesecakes in town. Every flavor is a treat! The staff are friendly & helpful, and get people through the line quickly & efficiently. The seating areas are great, I prefer outside & the chance to people watch!

After a great meal at Crafted my friends and I were on the hunt for dessert. Our server recommended this spot. She was right. My plain NY style cheesecake was outstanding and the orange creamsicle cupcake I took home for the next morning was a bit of sweet heaven with a cup of coffee. Greensboro may end up on my... More

Yes, my favorite item from here is the Carrot Cake. I have been coming here since being an undergrad in the early 2000s. They have expanded their options and its just a great place to go after dinner downtown.

Amazing variety of cheesecakes, some of the best I have had. Stick with the cheesecakes though, they are the best items in the store!

We tried slices of carrot cake and chocolate cake with oreos on the side and both were very good. I wouldn't say these two cakes were the best we've ever had, but they were still very good. I would like to go back and try some cheesecake, since that is their name! There were just so many good looking cakes,... More

My siblings and I did a food tour while we were in Greensboro for a long weekend, and Cheesecakes By Alex was the last stop on the tour. We sampled the pumpkin, the chocolate chip, and the Kahlua cheesecakes - they were all delicious. I would highly recommend the pumpkin.
